Good old Slap Bookleather seems to be taking a break from blogging for a while, the reason which will become evident when I eventually get around to writing Part 5 of Who Put a Cowboy in My Dungeons and Dragons Game? In the mean time, let me leave you with a couple of quotes from my favorite character in Boomtown, the Facebook western game. Crazy A. Crockett is one of the villains, with the look of Davy Crockett mixed with the attitude of Mike Fink. He says the craziest shit when you fight, for example:
Yer face or yer ass, what’s the difference?
How’s that whoopass tasting?
I’m about to open up a can of whoopass!
Happy trails to me!
Here I go, laughing and scratching! Say Goodnight!
That first line gives me the willies. He may be talking about where he's going to open up the can of whoopass. He may be talking romance. Maybe "Whoopass" is his name for his long gun?
Some of the lines are in the very fun promotional video below, although weirdly Mr. Crockett himself doesn't make an appearance.
Hmm... maybe Crazy A Crockett would make a good druid in my next D&D game? Via con Dios!
